I made this lovely sweater twice (the first one was a wearable muslin made out of a lightweight knit fabric). The final version was made out of a gold colored waffle knit. I love both of them. I did not put either the cowl neck or turned over collar on either version. And for the gold one rather than use the facing pieces I did a banded neck finish that I'm really happy with. This is a relatively easy make and a very nice pattern.
I have made 3 Tobins so far- a cowl neck “muslin” in a quilted knit, a stretch boiled wool and today’s finish- a black stretch velvet crew neck. Many more to follow
